Blogging hiatus

Was completely unintentional. I have so much to share. Too much for one post.
Somehow, during my hiatus, Ethan turned 15 (and now nearly 16) months old! My sweet boy is growing even sweeter. Detailed update on him to come...

First, my blog is messed up. I have no idea what happened. I've tried to add a cute photo header but it just won't show up after saving. Ugh. Now there is no space for a title when I click on "new post". Anyone reading have ideas on how to fix this?

I never returned to my 40 bags in 40 days posts but believe me, I more than met my commitment. Although, I have to say that it may have been a bit unfair since we went into crazy de-clutter mode in order to put our house on the market.

We listed our house for sale, had 2 competing offers, one contract, resulting in one broken contract, and are currently taking a break. Keeping the house clean has been interesting with a 15-month-old. There is usually a mad dash of put aways and touch ups hours before showings.

We have been very busy touring more than 25 homes so far. We began our search out of our "comfort zone" of the local area that we are so accustomed to, but have reigned our search back in to this area again. There were a couple of houses that we considered but nothing that felt right. At this point we're seriously considering staying in our current home for a while longer. There have been a lot of signs pointing us right back here. We have a lot of changes on the horizon and it might be the smartest move to just stay put. We'll see...

--I started this post on 4/22/10. It's 5/15/10. Needless to say, things are crazy here.
Two years ago today we found out that we were expecting our first baby. One of the greatest moments of my life...
